that doesnt write properly if mirc codes are available on reading file.. for example:
Code:
  
alias readwrite {
   var %i = 1
    while (%i <= $lines(test.txt) {
     write example.txt $read($mircdirtest.txt,%i)
    inc %i
  }
}

Code:
alias readwrite {   
  var %i = 1    
  while (%i <= $lines(test.txt)[color:red])[/color] {     
    write example.txt $read($mircdirtest.txt,%i)   
    inc %i  
  }
}


Test1.txt contains:
T
Te
Tes
Test
Testi
Testin
Testing

Test2.txt was created and now contains:

T
Te
Tes
Test
Testi
Testin

$mircdirtest.txt is not needed, just test.txt will do....

I was modifying Bleach's post, I didn't want to change his code, just correct his little error.

that doesnt write properly if mirc codes are available on reading file.. for example:


..if i understood you right the problem might be that your file contains source code and will be evaluated during $read /write process.. ..try the -n switch with $read, should work fine if that s your problem,, like:
Code:
...
write example.txt $read($mircdirtest.txt,n,%i)
...



return is the movement of sense.

you may need this for a purpose besides this, but maybe you should use
/copy "filename 1" "new filename"
!!!grin!!!
